Description

Lot #1268 - From the '97 Walt Disney movie "FLUBBER" starring Robin Williams has since been customized by Mike Goldman Custom's, Inc. It received a complete rotisserie restoration featuring LS1 power, 4L60 transmission and a custom air intake engine panel under the hood. It sits on Air Ride Technoligies self leveling Ride Pro system with Wilwood 14" 6-piston brakes and 20" Dayton true knock-off wheels. Vintage Air heats and cools the Bird with the help of a custom cross flow radiator. The undercarriage features a 9" Ford rearend with 3.70 gears, polished stainless steel custom exhaust, magnaflow mufflers and all polished stainless steel lines. This freshly finished, 5-year, no expense spared restoration left no nuts or bolts unturned. The chrome and stainless steel moldings were restored while the body panels were massaged until flawless, followed by custom red basecoat/clearcoat paint. The interior is custom but done like the classic original look and a new tan German hartz cloth convertible top was installed. Looks great, but also drives and performs as good as it looks.
